Martha Franks Humble, 61, of El Dorado, passed away Tuesday, September 24, 2019 at her residence. She was born April 18, 1958 to Edward Ray Franks, Sr. and Mary Lou Hanson Franks in Quantico, VA.

Martha is preceded in death by her parents.

Those left to cherish her memories are her husband, James R. Humble of El Dorado; four children, Amy Davis (Robert) of Jacksonville, AR, Jacob Franks (Tiffany) of El Dorado, AR, Levi Funderburg of Rockwall, TX, Jamie Humble (Lesley) of Hot Springs, AR, five siblings, Edward Ray Franks, Jr. (Linda), Marilynn Huck (Bob), John Franks (Kathi), Mary Ellen Wilson, Fred Franks; six grandchildren, Robert Davis, Jr., Rory Davis, Ryan Davis, Audrey Jane Davis, McKinley Humble, Morgan Humble; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Martha was devoted to her husband and children. Her grandchildren were the sun in her sky. She loved them all to the moon and back. She was a kind heart, always there for her friends and family. She sat with the elderly, preached to the lost, and took care of all who were sick. She was a passionate paramedic who took pride in her work. One of the first female paramedics in Arkansas, she devoted more than 20 years to saving lives.

Martha loved to skate and dance and laugh. Music was her therapy and the garden was her happy place. She could grow anything! She was a strong woman. Physically, but more importantly spiritually. Her faith in the Lord carried her through many trials, and gives us the blessed assurance we will see her again.

There will be a day with no more tears, no more pain, and no more fears.  There will be a day when the burdens of this place will be no more....Rest In Peace my Dear Martha.  What a courageous fight you fought!  I'm so thankful for the time that I shared with you.  You will be greatly missed by so many.  Until we meet again, you will remain in our hearts.

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God.  - Eph 2:8

I spent many years with Martha at First Church of God in El Dorado. We had many good times together. I, as well as my late mother, Ann Freeman loved the Franks family. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.
